And to think that rain is only about water
is to think that silence is only about absences.
Listen to the patch of bark from the maple trees
it sings the perfume of copper leaves.
Sometimes a June dragonfly carries their melody
swerving through the awakening summer.
At times, their top tones collide with a sky hole
turning nothingness into wonder.
Let their song fill you up,
rainbow your soul.
